Avert your eyes, o ye of little faith  

I. Look, I never thought I'd say this, but there is such thing as an "unslashable" character. Not even in the sense of "God, that's an unappealing pairing" as I find, say, Dumbledore/Ollivander to be. There's no accounting for taste, presumably because everyone knows what accountants wear to work. However. Carrot. Oh please no. It's wrong, so, so wrong, on so many levels. I can take people slashing Vetinari and Vimes, although I can't see why -- Vimes is a man without a smidgeon of romance in his entire, copper-plated soul, from my reading of him. And Vetinari is Drumknott's. QED. But I cannot take anyone slashing Carrot with anyone. Upchuck reflex, meet my monitor. I'm sure you'll have a fine old time together.

II. </a></a>slashfest , a promotion. You can put in requests! For a rainbow coalition of fandoms! And my, if that isn't an apt term I don't know what is. All hailing The Slash. Really, if you're a fan, you shouldn't still be here. You can never say there isn't something you'd like to see written ... go forth and pimp like mad pimping things, my pretties!

I once toyed with the idea of a weird UST Vimes/Carrot fic where nothing happened but there was a certain chemistry between them and weird murky feelings that neither one understood. Never got around to writing it, though. I love Carrot/Angua, and I love Vimes/Sybil. Hell, me and best friend are going as Sam and Sybil for Halloween. :D

Personally, I ship Rincewind/Potatoes.

Same here; unlike JK, Pterry has a way of writing pairings so satisfactorily that it's well nigh impossible to imagine them being any other way. Aside from some that you (ie me) could read as implied -- Vetinari/Drumknott, ahaha -- and that could require some elaboration.

Dude, that's like canon. xD

Now that's just crazy talk. meh, unslashable. Sometimes you just have to assume someone, somewhere, is strange enough to do the slashing for you.

Oh, someone does. That's why I was so traumatised. I read it. :(

I, Adam Charman, am unslashable.

So there.

Yesbut, technically you are not a fictional character. Per se.

Parts of me. The fun parts.
